Críticas:

Praise for A DARK MATTER
“Peter Straub's new novel is a terrifying story of innocents-high school students in the turbulent sixties-who stumble into horrors far beyond their understanding. "A Dark Matter" is populated with vivid, sympathetic characters, and driven by terrors both human and supernatural. It’s the kind of book that’s impossible to put down once it has been picked up. It kept me reading far into the night. Straub builds otherworldly terror without ever losing touch with his attractive cast of youngsters, who age beautifully. Put this one high on your list.”
-Stephen King
"Part "Rashomon," part "The Turn of the Screw." Peter Straub may well be the most important voice in suspense fiction today."
-- Lincoln Child

I ve been reading Peter Straub since I was a teenager, and his work is hardwired into my brain. A Dark Matter contains echoes of all that has been great about Straub s previous work and builds upon it.This Rashomon-like tale is as spooky and frightening as anything he has written, but it s also an intense and moving celebration of love.Out of the darkness comes, ultimately, a surprising and haunting sense of joy. Dan Chaon
Increasingly, Peter Straub brilliantly defies and blurs literary genres. A Dark Matter is a page-turning thriller of every sort: psychological, sociological, epistemological. Plus, it s really scary. Lorrie Moore
A devastatingly good novel. In its investigation of a dark ritual that casts a decades-long shadow, A Dark Matter makes you question all you thought you knew about horror and about literature. But it goes well beyond that: it messes with your sense of reality and then, just when you re getting your bearings, scrambles it again. Brian Evenson"

Reseña del editor:

An electric, chilling, and unpredictable novel from the master of modern horror.

On a Midwestern campus in the 1960s, a charismatic guru and his young acolytes perform a secret ritual in a local meadow. What happens is a mystery—all that remains is a gruesomely dismembered body and the shattered souls of all who were present. Forty years later, one man seeks to learn about that horrifying night, and to do so he’ll have to force those involved to examine the unspeakable events that have haunted them ever since.
